Notes/Commercial Description:
Our India Pale Ale has a pronounced hop bitterness and wonderful hop aroma. The taste immediately gives away the high hop characteristics with malt aspects playing second fiddle to this fantastic example of the style.

Golden orange in color with good clarity. Poured with a short white foam that reduced to a thin bright cap that left sheets of wet sticky lacings on the glass. Pungent, herbal, onion-like aroma up front, with light, ripe tropical hop and sweet malty notes in tow. Medium bodied with a a slick oily feel with slightly biting aggressive carbonation over top. Flavors are similar to aromas with dominant, pungent, herbal hop bitterness from start to finish. Sweet malt presence offsets the bitterness a bit but this id clearly a bitter hop forward offering. Pungent flavors take a spicy turn through the middle as pine hop flavors emerge toward the end. Finished with a lingering light pine hop bitterness.

On tap at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY. Poured nearly clear, glowing almond amber, with bubbles rising and supporting a lighter khaki head, leaving scattered bits of fine lace on the glass. moderate hopped nose, resiny in nature. The moderate nature of the hop approach continues onto the tongue and mouth, resiny/grainy, but not much more then moderate in their presence. Middle of the road IPA, nothing special...Unlikely I'd go for this one again

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, copper in color, high carbonation, clear

Smell: citrus hops and toasted malt

Taste: citrus hops, toasted malt, honey, slight resin

Mouthfeel: sweet start with a dry bitter backbone, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: A high quality, clean, and well crafted IPA. Nice citrusy flavors and not overly bitter. I would consider picking up a six pack of this again.

4.28/5  rDev +12%

Serving glass: Poured from can into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Cloudy amber-orange with nice, off-white head and good lacing.

Smell: Sharp citrus that is definitely Citra hops. Some pine, pineapple and a little bit dank as well.

Taste: Very hoppy and juicy, with grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Fairly dank, with notes of marijuana and onion. The finish is quite bitter and piney. I guess there are some malts under there but I wasn't really paying attention to them.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium to full that is fairly oily, very dry.

Overall: Excellent IPA that is very juicy and hoppy. Quite underrated IMO.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A crisp, juicy, and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus and grass. Citrus hop hints of grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, lemon, mango, and melon. Earthy and floral hops with hints of pine resin and grass. Solid malt backing with hints of sweet caramel, biscuit, yeast, and cracker. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell indicates, a juicy and piney hop forward taste with good notes of citrus, pine, and grass. Upfront citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, and melon. Solid presence of earthy and floral hops with a dank presence of pine resin and grass. Good sweet malt backing with notes of caramel, grains, biscuit, and yeast. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A very solid West Coast style IPA. Good notes of citrus and pine with a solid malt presence.

I wasnt sure what I was getting when I tried this one. I never heard of the brewery before.
The pour was that perfect orange hue of a neatly hopped beer. The light cream head was a perfect counterbalance to the orange overtone.

No question about hops here. The ongoing aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine resin and much more filled my nose the way a good hoppy IPA should.

Without even tasting this one, I knew what to expect. It held up to my expectations.
Crisp, Light with the tingling effect on my tongue with a dry and lingering aftertaste. You knew what you just tatted.

I was very impressed by this IPA

Nice looking ambery gold color with a large white head. Head fades to a foamy ring and thin layer leaving a couple scattered bubble string around the glass. Aroma is sweet floral, happy citrus, slightly tropical, and fresh doughy-grainy malt. Simple pleasant aromas.... Taste is a well balanced combo of Citra hop flavors, bitterness, and chewy malts. Candy lemon, sweet orange, floral, a little spicy zest, and some tropical mango fruitiness. Bitterness is just right...not overpowering but pleasant and entertaining.

Easy to drink and very pleasant.
